    Well, you can blame Barry boy for the AIG bonuses. Remember when Chris Dodd took flak for their bonuses included in a bill? One day he claimed he had no idea how the bonus language got into it, but the heat got so bad he was forced a day or two later to admit he did it on the advice of the White House.

    But what's the big deal? Look at all the jobs the administration created with their nearly trillion dollars of bailouts. Thank God we had enough shovels ready to handle all the work, huh?

    Blame Obama and not Bush with his bailouts? How about blaming the GOp for pushing for less regulation and oversight?

    Barney Frank said he did it. During his campaign he said he had "ideological blinders on" as House banking chairperson and let Fannie Mae collapse. Frank Raines is an Obama financial advisor. As CEO of Fannie it is alleged that he cooked the books to show a fake profit that was tied to his bonus money and walked away with 90 Million (taxpayer) dollars for three years work.
